In 1990 DJ Stretch Armstrong and Bobitto Garcia debuted their college radio show on Columbia University’s WKCR (89.9FM) in NYC and left an indelible mark on the culture. The show, which ran until 1998, helped launch the careers of many of hip-hop’s biggest stars—including The Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Nas, Big Pun, the Wu-Tang Clan, DMX, Cam’ron, Mobb Deep, Big L and Fat Joe, among others.
Listeners used to tune in to hear rare cuts, b-sides and remixes to some of their favorite songs, as well as interviews and live freestyles. Tomorrow, (early Friday morning on October 22) from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. Stretch and Bob will return to WKCR to broadcast a special anniversary show.
Here is the full 5 hrs (it ran an hour over!!), recording is courtesy of DJ Eclipse and is the best one out there.
